's used this weird timeline of '99 to 2002 when all the bad stuff happened, i wasn't there. >> right. it's a product of the romney campaign's attempt to keep this incredibly simple. in the primary, the same documents were kicking around in the primary and the campaign would never engage in them directly. the republicans opponents were shopping them around but they backgrounded reporters, talked reporters out of writing about it. they kept everything very abstract. there's a saying if you're explaining, you're losing. they clearly believe it. they have not explained everything. in a presidential campaign that's not an option. the heat sometimes gets so hot, you have to explain, you have to engage. what they have succeeded in doing is pushing all the explanation into the summer and fall, when they could have done it last year. >> now you're starting to see republicans question sort of what's going on and how they are handling this. politico has a fairly extensive roster of prominent republican strategists saying you guys are going to have to tackle this. jonathan bernstein in the "washingt

[applause] >> that's a step in the right direction. >> alisyn: so the number of new enrollees to disability went up 19% higher than the jobs added. so, obviously, there is a big sort of discrepa
for the last three and a half years despite repeated appeals, bipartisan appeals urging them to work with us to help solve the judicial vacancy crisis. i have been here in the time of president ford, president carter, president reagan, president george h.w. bush, president clinton, president george w. bush. none of these presidents were treated like this, none of them were by either republicans or democrats. somehow this president is considered different. we have seen everyone from chief justice john roberts who was appointed by a republican president to the nonpartisan american bar association urging the senate to vote on qualified judicial nominees. they are able to administer justice for the american public. sadly, republicans insist on being the party of no. but the american people and the overburdened federal courts need qualified justices to administer justice in our federal courts, not the perpetuation of extended numerous vacancies. we extend the number of vacancies even as the population of this country increases. today, vacancies on the federal courts are more than two and a half t

of hardship and uncertainty, you've seen the last few days some of the largest and most important u.s. companies report sagging profits, those who believe that the europe -- situation in europe would not directly affect u.s. companies are beginning to see they were more wrong than right. i think giving as much as you can to big companies, medi medium-sized and small companies around any and everything government will or won't do is critical. extending tax cuts for all americans going to solve all our fiscal cliff issues? no. short of congress being able to do something meaningful, sustainable they should probably extend the cuts for everyone and look forward to the beginning of next spring or next year deal with sequestration, long-term fiscal responsibility, sustainability, but short of that, i don't know how this gives any more certainty, any more comfort. as you've talked on the show many times in the past, to businesses across the nation. what concerns me, you see the front page of the newspapers, europe's crisis hits profits, rising food prices. american consumer and business lea
